Funded Ph.D. Studentship at the Open University Business School (UK)

For the academic year beginning 1 October 2016, the Open University is inviting applications for a full-time funded PhD studentship entitled "The Globalisation of Nonmarket Strategies: A True Phenomenon?", co-supervised by Professor Thomas Lawton and Dr. Raquel García-García. This project aims to study the drivers of nonmarket strategies (i.e., firms' corporate political activity and corporate social responsibility) as well as the most profitable way to enforce them (domestically, regionally, or globally). The studentship covers tuition fees, a research training support grant and a starting stipend of circa £14,000 per year. This is a full-time three-year studentship and the successful applicant would be required to live in the UK and usually within commuting distance of the Milton Keynes campus.

The Open University looking for highly motivated candidates who have a good honours degree at a minimum of 2:1 or equivalent in a related subject, plus around 120 credits of advanced research methods skills or ideally a Masters in research methods. Candidates who do not have sufficient research methods training may be offered a place on our one-year full time Masters in Research Methods course. Candidates' applications should comprise a 1000-word research proposal and a covering letter outlining their suitability for the project. Deadline: the deadline for applications is midday GMT on 7 April 2016.
